    Blurry Cockpit Textures in P3D

    The night lighting textures are still 1K, left over from the v3 and older cockpit lighting system. We'll be re-baking them in the future at 2K for v4.

    Cosmetic Exteroir

    Texture variations will be up to the repainters, to an extent. We can't do all possible combinations ourselves. To our knowledge, very few 717s have air stairs, and they are rarely used (even Volotea uses external stairs). We might do air stairs at some point, but it's not a high priority. I'd like to do plugs for the eyebrow windows, however I'm not sure if/when this will happen.

    Status Update (Version and the Future

    Eyebrow windows likely won't happen for 1.1, but it's something I may look at in the future after all the high priority stuff is done.

    Flight dynamics

    Yes, this is normal behavior for aircraft with tail-mounted engines.

    TFDi Design 717: Introducing RealLight

    I would recommend you look a bit more closely. Not to downplay what FSL has done, but these are two completely different concepts and visual results. FSL Spotlights is a light source (similar to placing a vclight FX file) that can be added to any aircraft by end users. RealLight allows for variable blending of pre-baked lighting textures, which yields a more realistic result. Developers can license this technology and distribute it with their aircraft to achieve much more authentic lighting.
  9. RealLight is a Prepar3D v4-exclusive technology that we have developed to achieve much clearer, smoother cockpit lighting textures. Learn more at

    Liveries requests and reviews here

    I was giving estimates at one point, but it's very difficult to provide accurate time frames for something like this, so I try to avoid it. Shouldn't be too much longer, though.

    Virtual Cockpit Interior Windows Semi-Opaque

    Brad, 1. What graphics card do you have? 2. What operating system do you run? 3. How much RAM and VRAM does your system have? No, I've been asking people with this issue to provide system specs and such, and I'm getting very little in response. So, let's try here! This issue seems inconsistent. It sometimes affects more objects than just the window glass.

    vc night light workaround & thoughts...

    We're currently exploring a potential solution for the color banding that would be a v4 feature only (due to increased memory usage).

    Liveries requests and reviews here

    Yes, I did our official Hawaiian and Qantas liveries (Delta was done by the original artist years ago). Thanks, glad you like it! I plan to do the new Hawaiian livery after I'm done with the exterior update. I also plan to improve the Delta one and offer an official Volotea and Turkmenistan livery as well. Later on, I want to do some of the historical liveries (Midwest and AirTran to name a few).

    Liveries requests and reviews here

    The fonts I used aren't identical, but they seemed fairly close. Codex LT for the name on the nose, and Microsoft Sans Serif for the tail.

    Eyebrow window texture overlaps

    Sorry for the delay on this! The video compression is making it hard to see, especially being night time. Are you sure you're not just seeing the window through the visor because it's transparent? I'll take a look on my end, though.
